The Toronto Marlies have had luck that can be seen as both good and bad of late. While they've picked up large pockets of important wins over the course of their playoff push, they've had a nasty habit of losing games to the teams that are directly in front of them. For this reason, taking on the Lake Erie Monsters, who came into the game tied in points, was a bit worrisome for them. However, a late rally was enough to push the team to victory and keep their hopes alive.

I can just picture it now. The day is January 1st, 2017.  The Toronto Maple Leafs are taking on the Buffalo Sabres in the Winter Classic, hosted at the recently renamed and partially renovated Rogers Skydome. Morgan Rielly fires a stretch pass out to Connor McDavid. McDavid pulls a spin-o-rama to get past Jack Eichel, and fires a shot top shelf. Two minutes left in 3-on-3 overtime. Hat trick.

The crowd goes wild. The Leafs improve to 1-36-0. Until then, we're stuck with these two god-awful teams, delivering realistic forms of disappointment to the masses.

Heading into downtown Toronto during rush hour is practically a suicide mission. Everything is so crowded, and you find yourself in a panic, over-thinking every step you make in an attempt to get just a little closer to your destination. As much as that’s a description of my commute to Ricoh Coliseum, it could also be applied to the Toronto Marlies’ playoff push. Tonight, they attempted to further push into the crowd, taking on the Chicago Wolves. However, as the 2-1 result would indicate, it didn't work out.

The tides have turned. Peter Horachek is a genius. Tyler Bozak is going to come from behind and win the Rocket Richard in the final games. G-Man is going to finish top ten in team plus/minus. Everything is going according to plan.

Okay, maybe that's a stretch. Though, technically, Garret Gamble is actually 6th in team plus/minus right now. Anyway, today is Monday, which means its time to answer some mailbag questions!
